Handy Forum Words

Advice; advise. If I advise you on something, I am giving you advice. I cannot give you advise, since advise is a verb and verbs are doing words and cannot be given.

define advice - Bing

define advise - Bing



Averse; adverse. Someone can be risk averse. Risk adverse does not exist.

If you are in a court case, you may get an adverse decision. You cannot get an averse decision, or be risk adverse. You might be averse to an adverse decision, but this would not be a great word choice because of the possibility of confusion.

define averse - Bing

define averse - Bing

Ha

Maybe so, but why would someone resist learning a few simple things that may make a difference in many areas of life?

My excuse-

Quote:
Dyslexia, is characterized by difficulty with learning to read fluently and with accurate comprehension despite normal intelligence. This includes difficulty with phonological awareness, phonological decoding, processing speed, orthographic coding, auditory short-term memory, language skills/verbal comprehension



and-


Quote:
A common misconception about dyslexia is that dyslexic readers write words backwards or move letters around when reading this only occurs in a very small population of dyslexic readers.[45] Individuals with dyslexia are better identified by reading accuracy, fluency, and writing skills that do not seem to match their level of intelligence from prior observations.

Too many people use two or more spellings for the word to.

I also get affected by the effect.
